Tonya is such a terrific “role model” with regard to active/healthy lifestyle that I think that this was the motivation I needed to move me on. Thanks once again for the fantastic opportunity to continue the journey to a healthier me.-
Everyone has a diet story. The no sugar diet. The veggie diet. The candy corn diet. Women who strive to be thin, seeking out the latest diet of the week in an effort to fit into that little black dress.
And while these diets might help you eek out those last few pounds for a big event, they don’t work for the long haul. Give it a few weeks or a few months and the weight will be back—and then some.
Why? Because your family isn’t on board with eating healthy. Because your job got busy and you don’t have time. Because your kids are sick. Because you have relatives visiting. Because, because, because. But what you don’t realize is that none of these reasons are truly why the weight came back.
You can take the convenient route and blame others, your schedule, or even money for your weight. But the reality is that the weight keeps coming back because you didn’t get to the root of why you gained weight in the first place.
You need to know that it’s you and the choices you make each day that make those pounds seemingly impossible to release—and keep off. Am I blunt? Yes. Does it work? You bet. I’ve been right where you are and found my way to a healthier way of life that I love.
Wild Souled Wellness evolved from – TW Fitness. I started this business after my own life altering realization that the weight wasn’t the issue, it was a manifestation of the issue! Stick with me… I spent my whole life dieting. I tried everything. I lived on diet pills when I wasn’t cycling in bouts of anorexia and bulimia. When I had a wake up call one day, I realized that I couldn’t keep living this way, that I had to make this about my health, not the scale, even if it meant I never lost another pound. I was tired of hating myself, tired of hating how my weight dictated and ruled my entire life. I set out to create habits, to workout and eat healthy. I tossed the scale and the cigarettes. And 6 months later I was leaner than I’d ever been.
I knew then I had discovered the ONLY secret we need in the fitness industry. And it’s not in a diet pill bottle.
It’s in teaching people how to truly change their lives. Step by step.
I started my business as a way to reach more people with this message. After 10 years in the fitness industry, TW Fitness has evolved into Wild Souled Wellness… because in order to take the steps to truly change your life, it takes courage and faith. It takes a willingness to pull back the layers of our limiting beliefs and where they came from; why we eat, smoke, drink, watch endless tv (or anything else we’re addicted to) to “check out” of our lives instead of using exercise. It takes courage to look at who we are, what we want and map out a plan to get it and deal with all of the “stuff” that comes up along the way.
Wild Souled Wellness is all about working in the gap from where you are to where you want to be, working through that “stuff” as it comes up, to find solutions and develop healthier coping skills while still working towards your goals, not to give up because things got hard. Most people quit at the first sign of a bump in the road. But it’s life, there will always be bumps in the road. The path to success isn’t paved with gold, it’s littered with blood, sweat, tears and a lot of swearing! You’ll want to quit and then we’ll figure out why you want to 😉 See how it works? It’s fun, trust me!
We get into the “stuff” that’s stopping you from being successful so you can.
It’s my mission to end the self-hate dieting that’s so prevalent today and teach women how to take responsibility for their lives and their bodies. I want to give you the tools you need to make health a priority with ease, grace, fun so you can become the best version of yourself.
I can help because I’ve been there. I know what the darkness looks, feels and tastes like. I’ve been on my knees praying to feel better. It didn’t come in the magic pill I had hoped for, but it came to me. And my life has never been the same, thankfully. I thought weight loss would make me happy, but it didn’t. When I got happy, I lost the weight. Life’s funny like that – when we stop chasing what we think we’re after and go after what we’re actually after, things align and magic happens.
You can have the same success.
